They also arrested Falun Gong practitioners Lin Kuimei, Wang Fenglan and Zhang Yongmei. Several people, including police officers. beat Ms. Wang mercilessly and shocked her with electric batons. On the same day, she was taken to the Zhaoyuan City Detention Center. There she started a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The police handcuffed her and hung her up by her wrists until she was on the verge of death. Being afraid to take responsibility for her death, they asked the Zhangxing Police Station to take Ms. Wang home. The police took Ms. Wang to her father's home when they saw that she was in a critical condition. The township director assigned five people, two males and three females, along with the village security guards, to take turns monitoring Ms. Wang during the days and nights that followed.
